“Nice Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We took a weekend trip to West Yellowstone and found Al's Westward Ho Motel. We were surprised at the reasonable rate since we were still in the summer season. The room was large and the beds were firm and comfortable. Very clean too. Overall we were very pleased and would recommend this motel to all travelers in the area.

Pros: Very close to the west entrance to Yellowstone. Big rooms.
Cons: No A/C. No phone, fridge, microwave. Must check in by 9 pm. No ice machine--have to ask the clerk for ice, and they only give you enough ice for four cups.

WARNING !!! If you don't check in by 9pm, not only will you loose your room, but you will be CHARGED for it. I made my reservation in the morning, was told check-in was between 4pm & 9pm. I was running late due to road construction and an accident in the park. I made a courtesy call from Old Faithfull to let them know I would be in about 9:15pm. It was then that I was informed that if I didn't check in by 9 pm, I would loose my room. Needless to say, thank goodness there was no park police roaming around to give me a speeding ticket, I made it by 5 min. The front desk clerk was rude and condescending upon checking in.

But it gets better,the room was old, it had a stale odor in the room and the water pressure was non-existent in the morning. I was almost scalded when the temperature went from luke warm to ice cold, then scalding hot. I Will not stay here again or recommend this hotel. The only good thing I have to say is about the older gentleman who put a towel on our motorcycle seats in the morning to wipe off any condensation and keep them from getting hot.

From the 70's kitsh of the lobby, I wondered what we were in for, but the room we had in the new section on the 2nd floor was lovely, big, and comfortable. Stayed for 4 nights, and would easily recommend again.

Be patient with the owner, she seemed a little overdone a couple of times, but at times she is quite busy. Go with the flow, this is a VACATION!

When I arrived, I was worried, but after checking in and seeing the room and location to the West entrance to Yellowstone, I relaxed. The non smoking room was HUGE and clean....although dated. No AC, but there was a box fan and that was sufficient with the window open. Free internet and a clean bathroom, comfortable beds with new mattresses and plenty of extra space. For the price in this town, this was a good find for our purposes.

Stayed one night. I was a little worried by the outside appearance of the hotel, but our room was spacious, clean, and there was a fan available to block any outside noise. The beds were clean and comfortable. Wifi is available but slow. The owner is not overly friendly but that doesn't bother me. One block to shopping and 2 blocks to the entrance to Yellowstone.
